Brandon Webster’s hat-trick helped Raiders to victory in their National League Division Two clash with the Mustangs at Sapphire Ice & Leisure Centre on Saturday.

Buoyed by their 8-4 home win over Haringey a week earlier, the hosts took just 71 seconds to open the scoring through Kamil Kinkor.

But the visitors were back on terms with a power play goal from Joe Bliss, after Daniel Hitchings was given a cross-checking penalty.

Raiders regained the lead through Webster, who netted on a power play when Michael Stokes was binned for tripping, and it was 3-1 when Webster struck on another man advantage, after Jarvis Mewett was given a minor penalty for a late hit.

Clint Walton clashed with Jake Stedman towards the end of the first period, picking up 14 minutes in penalties, and Raiders had to kill off elbowing minors against Bailey Chittock and Webster early in the middle session.

They moved 4-1 ahead when captain Sam Roberts netted from Alan Lack and George Gell assists, with the only goal of the second period.

And a fifth goal arrived early in the final stanza as Lack set up Tommy Huggett.

Webster completed his treble in the 53rd minute, before Walton was ejected on a game misconduct penalty.

But although Bliss struck again for the visitors it was only a consolation effort as Raiders completed a double over their rivals from Kent.

Scorers, Raiders: Brandon Webster 3; Sam Roberts 1+1; Tommy Huggett 1; Kamil Kinkor* 1; Alan Lack 0+3; Bailey Chittock 0+2; Thomas Baptist 0+1; Ellie Wakeling 0+1; George Gell 0+1.

Mustangs: Joe Bliss 2; Brad Guttridge 0+1; Anthony Baskerville 0+1; Regan O’Neill 0+1.

Shots on goal: Brad Windebank (R) 13-13-9=35-2; Matthew Passmore (I) 14-15-17=46-6.
